I am a newbie, and before I start setting this up I am trying to find
out if will work in a similar fashion to the commercial product from
I think the main feature I am after if the ability for the client to
initiate the back-up on a scheduled basis, the connected product is very
in your face - which for laptop users etc I think is excellent, it tells
you about failures and so on.
There is then also the ability on the back end to see the status of all
Is this possible?
If any-one is interested I have a nice front end for windows for rsync
which I have had wrote, if anyone wants the source to modify for this

Normally the scheduled operations would be done from the
server side but it will automatically find which machines
are normally turned off at night and retry those during
the day. There is a web interface where you can
request unscheduled backups from the client side as well
as the restores. That seems natural to me, but I
suppose you could script the web access from the client
if you really wanted to control the schedule there. It
sends email on failures.

Yes, the web interface provides that.
